Rio Ferdinand has admitted that he is anxious that Liverpool FC will finish above Manchester United in the Premier League table this season.

Former Liverpool striker Neil Mellor believes the Reds are in the best position to push Manchester City for the Premier League title this season. Yes sir we've all that and more to sink our teeth into as the first weekend of a new season crashes over us like a wave, and it all starts tonight at Old Trafford.

Tottenham became the first side in Premier League history not to make a summer signing since the transfer window began in 2003.

On potential debutant Riyad Mahrez, Guardiola added: "He knows the Premier League and that's a good point for us".

"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that".

Deloitte sport business group has released figures regarding the amount spent on transfer of players in the Premier League this summer.

Even though Pep Guardiola has the financial clout to purchase any player he wants, he has amassed a fantastic squad.

Centre-back Alfie Mawson, signed from Swansea for £15m, was another coup, while Calum Chambers joined on loan from Arsenal.

The Times learnt that there is most disquiet among the biggest clubs, as they are the ones most likely to have players targeted by foreign clubs and less time to sign players from their domestic rivals.

The Leicester City defender made his mark for the Three Lions at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup, scored his first global goal and was the brain behind Gareth Southgate's solid defence line during the World Cup.

I think that they will be the ones who push City all the way and I don't expect Guardiola's champions to run away with it as easily as they did last season, when the title race was nearly done and dusted by Christmas.

TERRIERS fans greeted their first foray into the Premier League last season (following promotion through the play-offs) with wild celebration and little real expectation and this approach served them well as after a fairly solid first two-thirds of the season their side found themselves hovering around the relegation zone from about February.
